I just tried my first Laura Mercier Lip Glacé and I must say that I like it! The packaging is pretty, the formula, although a little sticky, is not too sticky and it smells divine, like spun sugar. YUM!
I was in Rite Aid the other day and what do I see on the shelf but Maybelline’s “On the Runway” release for fall 2013. There were three displays, one with lipglosses only, one with nail polish only and the other with nail polish, eyeshadow quads and lipsticks.
Its no secret that I’m in love with Buxom’s Kanani lipgloss. Its a beautiful, bright pink. I Love It!!
I picked up Hibis-kiss, a lipgloss from Drew Barrymore’s new makeup collection at Walmart called Flower Cosmetics. It looked a whole lot like my beloved Kanani so I could not wait to swatch it. I’m excited to report that they are almost identical!!! Woohoo.

After a year of trying this and that from the drugstore I am ready to render my opinions on the Best of Beauty 2012: Drugstore Edition! Drugstore makeup has really stepped it up. There were some very exciting releases and some long time favorites as well. Check out what I found to be the best in drugstore beauty!!

Its finally here, Mac By Request. Mac allowed its customers to vote on what products they wanted brought back from previous collections. In the end, 3 lipsticks, 3 lipglasses and 3 eyeshadows were brought back. Here is what I picked up!
I purchased these products with my own money and as always, these are my own honest opinions.
I’m starting my journey into the YSL brand. I first started off with the lipstain (review to come.. short and sweet of it is that I like them:) I also picked up two of the Golden Glosses to try.
Here is what YSL says about them:
“Worth its weight in gold, this gorgeous gloss dresses lips in a sophisticated, high-shine shimmer that’s truly precious. Sparkling 24 carat gold flecks (0.2%) create a mirror-like effect for guaranteed glamour, while a complex of nourishing oils protect and hydrate for optimal comfort. Scented with a subtle hint of Mango that’s utterly irresistible.”
The glosses are beautiful to look at. They are not sticky and they shine like no bodies business! They have decent staying power too. If they had a different smell and taste I would be in super love. Sadly, they are a mango, watermelon with a hint of number 2 pencil lead flavor:( I hate the smell and taste. Why do we need everything to have a taste? Despite YSL’s claim, I can resist! I don’t get it. The worst part is that these glosses have such a strong flavor and scent that it changes the taste of your food if you eat with them on. Yucky Poo!
If I could stand the scent I would purchase them again, but sadly, I just don’t like it. I can’t deal! I’m going to wear the two I have, but no more, not unless they change the scent. Hint Hint to YSL if you are reading this, I will buy a ton of these babies if you will change the scent, please!!!
These glosses retail for $30. I got mine at Sephora and Nordstrom. You can also get them at sephora.com, nordstrom.com, yslbeautyus.com and anywhere YSL is sold.
I purchased these products and was not compensated for this review. As always, these are my own, honest opinions.
Ok, so here is what I got from Mac’s Heavenly Creatures collection for fall 2012. This is their mineral collection. I was a little disappointed with the eyeshadows except for Magnetic Attraction which will make it into my July favorites. Did you pick anything up? I’d love to hear:)
I purchased these items myself and was not compensated to feature them. As always, these are my own, honest opinions
